    I worked at Ryanair full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Meet and work with people from many different cultures, learn a lot from training/ on the job. Good roster 5 on 3 off

    Cons

    Not payed for delays etc, earned half the amount my friends from other airlines earned but worked much more. Bad management abusing their power, sales pressure, no travel benefits staff travel only for yourself and sometimes more expensive than booking as a passenger

    I worked at Ryanair full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get thrown in the deep end and if you can swim you will learn a lot quickly. You get a lot of experience fast. The guys around you are pretty good and a lot of them are quite experienced. Some middle management are solid people. You "get to see the world" Great for a young engineer trying to earn their stripes.

    Cons

    You get thrown in the deep end. Management style is arcane. Law of the jungle mentality pushed from the top down. Airport locations usualy suck.

    Advice to Management

    Play nice. You get more from people that way.
